I'm the proud owner of my first Pantera. I'm from Denmark, and have been looking for the right car for the past 6 months. Finally found it with help from PIM - It's now being restored with a fresh coat of paint, new interior etc.
When the shop is done with it, it will be shipped to Denmark for me to enjoy.

You can see and follow the progress here:

CLick on the Pantera #2241 at the categories at the right (Sorry, it's in danish - But Google Translate will do the trick...)

What color are you repainting it, and was it originally white?


Wow - It's an exact twin to mine. It was yellow when it left the factory in october 1971. Repainted in 1990 when it was still on Hawaii, where it have spend most of it's life.
It will be Candy Red (2010 Ford Flex color)
VERY nice website You have there, BTW !!!!

Very Nice! Looks like Chevy owner too (in the garage). Nice to see another Pantera/Chevy owner.

Thanks. The garage or the other cars are not mine, though. It's my friend, Steve, in California, who inspected and bought the car for me. He's the guy that are doing the paint etc. for me too.

In my garage here in Denmark, there is 2 CopCars (1971 Plymouth, Walnut Creek PD, and a '75 Plymouth NYDP) - See them here:

Also have a 1963 Mercury Marauder that at the moment is being build in 70's customstyle. Candy, flake, lace... you name it ! I love the 70's *LOL*

Cheers, Tim.

Thank you Tim - Was it Your Pantera that was displayed at "Gavno Auto Jumble" ??? - Looks good !!

Can't wait untill mine hits Denmark. But it will probably be in the late fall, so I won't be able to drive it before next year.

Nice cat. Of course I prefer white, but I love the cop cars! Who is the "arrested" female and what did she do? Wink

Thank You. Your Pantera is VERY nice too. Love Your website ! I'll have to spend more time to look it through another day, when I have the time.

The female cop is a friend of mine. There's more pictures of her at my Policecar website:

And for more copcar/female pics there are a new update on my other site:

Enjoy... *LOL*
An update on my Pantera build in California.
Car was delivered to the paint/body shop 8 weeks ago. They have really been working overtime on this car.
Taken down to bare metal 2 days after we left it at the shop.

NO rust or bodydamage !!!! I like it......

Epoxy Primered

Almost no bondo needed for this car.

Now it's time for some color ! It's Ford's "Lazer Red" with a touch of Candy added to it.

The car left the paintshop last week, and are now on it's way to the upholstery shop.

When that's done it will return to the paintshop to get a final polishing, and will have the windshield, emblems etc. installed.

And after that it will go to another shop to get a new set of adjustable coilovers mounted, and then it should be ready to ship to me in Denmark.

On it's way to the Upholstery shop in Nuevo, CA

Delivered at the shop. Doors etc. will be alighned later...

There's nothing like a new paint job. So nice! I used to have a 98 Cobra Mustang that was Laser Red! Nice color. Big Grin

I (ofcause) love that color. I rented a 2010 Ford Flex on my vacation to SoCal two years ago, and instantly fell in love with that color. So I was pretty sure what color to choose, when I bought the Pantera.

Originally posted by BOXXBOYS: I'm lurking in the Pantera shawdows at times and come across this. "Who would ever paint their Pantera Laser Red with Candy?"

Great Choice. Makes me shed a tear.

Damn nice car, Dave !!! My car is a spitting image of Yours. Wild !!!

Of course, seeing you change from that beautiful white to RED makes me shed a tear too... Ha Ha. dead horse roll on floor

Actually, the colour looks fantastic and you are going to have one very popular (the most popular?) car in Denmark when you are done. Even without the blonde cop-babes, I think the Pantera will win "most-popular" when you are at shows. I can just see the staged "chase" scenes involving your Fury and the Pantera!

Haha, Mark - Yeah, the white colorscheme was ofcause right up Your alley. I think it looked good too, but chose to ad some COLOR to it *LOL*
I was torn between the Ford "Laser Red" and the Corvette "Atomic Orange" for it.

Think I made the right choice, though...

Alot of the danish photographers that allready have taken alot of pictures of my other cars, can't wait till the Pantera arrives. They have ALOT of ideas.... Including my copcars, babes etc. - So that might be interresting.... dancing

Stay tuned - There will be updates constantly on my website: - Still it's in danish, but either BING translate or Google translate will do the trick (Hopefully)
Just got home after a 2 weeks vacation to California, where I ofcause also drove by my Pantera to see the process of the car.

Here I am just before my first testrun of the car. Excited is the word !!

Testrun is done... I LOVE IT !!!!!

The interior done by James Mendoza in Nuevo, Ca turned out GREAT. I have a new Piloto steeringwheel for it, for later install.

Agree, it's really a nice and clean looking car and a terrific color. Looking forward to seing it here in denmark and going for some pantera cruising. Regarding popularity in denmark you may get steep competition from "no quarters" car, which is getting a fresh yet to be announced very secret colour Big Grin

Thanks for those words Push1267. But while my car is great mechanically IMHO and soon will be exterior wise, the interior is not good. danishcarnut, unless the containership sinks, you win! :-)

Naaaaa, as long as Kristians (Push1267) Pantera is on the road, I have no chance of winning anything. That car is stunning everywhere You look. And that too is painted in a incredible color. Especially when You see it live and in the sunshine. So sparkling !!

But I'm really looking forward to see how Yours turn out, and what color it's going to be. But hopefully we can follow the process in here ??

I'm looking forward to see alot of Pantera's on the winding roads in Denmark next year !
A little update on my Pantera that are being finished in Cali. It's now VERY close to be done, and ready for shipping to Denmark. It will be shipped together with 2 other cars that I've bought. An unrestored lowmiles MINT condition 1962 Impala and a restored 1965 Buick Electra conv.

New weatherstipping, mirrors and inside doorhandles

The interior came out pretty nice !

The rideheight is a little high. It's at the highest because it will help the guys when loading the car at the shipper.

This is how it looks like when it's lowered....

Adjustable coilovers from PIM - Safetywired !!

More pisc here:
Thank You for the kind words, guys !
I too love what they did to my interior. The seats and headrests are modified a bit in shape, but not to much. The design is insprired by vintage Ferrari's like the GT4, but still with our own ideas.

To answer Mikael about the red switch, my buddy in Cali, says it's for the afterburners. I'll have to try !! *LOL*

There is some "in progress pics" on my website, but the text is in danish...
